Academic Life

The academic profile of the Yale Institute of Sacred Music spans traditions and geographies. Partnering with two professional schools as well as numerous departments at one of the world’s great research universities, over 100 faculty, staff, students, and visiting scholars and artists comprise the dynamic community of the ISM. Students meet our faculty in the classroom, studio, rehearsal hall, and worship spaces, and while participating in study tours. As an international center for sacred music, worship, and the related arts, the Institute sponsors about 100 concerts, recitals, conferences, lectures, exhibits, films, and special events each year and is an active partner in the worship life of Yale’s many chapels.
